(PRESS RELEASE) -- Horseshoe Casino & Hotel - Bossier City is preparing for the grand opening of a highly anticipated, $4 million tropical swimming pool. The DARE pool has a Las Vegas theme, complete with cabanas, palm trees, an outdoor stage for DJs and performers, and full service outdoor bar and lounge. The grand opening ceremony is set for 9 a.m., Friday, June 6.
“This venue is one of a kind and is an added luxury amenity to the community and future conventions and guests,” said Ed Walsh, media relations for Horseshoe Casino and Hotel. “DARE will become the landmark concept for the ultimate party, celebration and entertainment for Northwest Louisiana.”
Horseshoe Casino and Hotel announced plans for the pool in early January of this year. Guests will be able to enjoy the luxury pool during the day, as well as into the night when it transforms from a tropical swimming area to an exotic night club. For non-hotel guests, admission to the DARE pool is $10.
“This pool is going to put us on a whole new level,” said Walsh. “Before, our hotel provided great food, entertainment and accommodations, but now our hotel will be able to offer all of that, plus a fantastic tropical pool to enjoy.”
Gamers can enjoy more than 1,500 slot machines and 60 table games at Horseshoe Casino and Hotel. The hotel is one of six riverboat casinos in Shreveport-Bossier, including the Margaritaville Resort Casino, which opened in June 2013.
